Richard Jewell offers Fuller Supply Company to Thomas Bednarek
After 30 years of being a pump specialty house, the time came for Jewell to hand off the business. Lacking an heir, Jewell offered Fuller Supply Company’s auditing CPA, Thomas Bednarek (far right of the picture), who accepted and became sole owner in 1966. Fuller Supply Company later narrowed its broad services from plumbing, sinks, and bathrooms into a more specialized water well supply house. Thomas eventually dropped the plumbing business in the late 1960s, and by the early 1970s, Bednarek focused on water well supplies, like sewage and environmental cleanup pumps and water treatment.
